Fish Tacos with Watermelon Radish SlawFish Tacos

Fish can be grilled, broiled, pan-fried or even planked to make summery fish tacos, topped with crunchy slaw studded with juicy watermelon. If you plan to plank your fish, you’ll need a food-grade plank; soak it in the sink (under a pan or other weight to keep it submerged) for at least an hour, or overnight. Adapted from watermelon.org.

1 lb tilapia, whitefish, or salmon
3 Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp honey
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

1 cup shredded cabbage
1 cup shredded or julienned radishes
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp cider vinegar
salt to taste
1 cup seedless watermelon, finely diced
3 Tbsp chopped cilantro

small fresh corn or flour tortillas

Place fish in a freezer bag with the remaining ingredients; seal, gently shake to coat the fish completely, and let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.

To plank your fish, soak a food-grade cedar plank for at least an hour, then place it on a preheated grill until it starts to smolder; place the fish on it and cook for 20 minutes, or until the edges flake with a fork. Have a spray bottle of water on hand to catch any flare-ups. Alternatively, place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes at 425F, or cook in a cast iron skillet on the stovetop or on the barbecue until the fish is just cooked through.

Wrap tortillas in aluminum foil and place on the shelf of the grill, or on a side that’s not on but is warm. (Alternatively, toss them in a warm oven for a few minutes. This will make corn tortillas more pliable.)

Meanwhile, toss the cabbage and radishes with the yogurt, mayonnaise, lime juice, vinegar and salt to taste. Add the watermelon and cilantro and gently toss to combine.

Flake the fish and use it to fill warm tortillas; top with slaw and serve immediately.

Serves 4-6.
